teRaspos- Post Lebaran (Eid al-Fitr) holiday, Jakarta Governor Joko Widodo promptly started his agenda by conducting ‘blusukan’ (unannounced visit) and monitoring a number of issues springing in Jakarta.
This afternoon, Jokowi monitored Tanah Abang market, Central Jakarta. As he arrived in the location at 13.00 WIB (West Indonesian Time), Jokowi strode straight to Tanah Abang Block G.
He started his monitoring by checking the ditch once filled by sewage. Without hesitation, he removed stacks of wood covering the ditch to see the result of the cleanup.
“Please clean it again later.” Said he to an officer of Jakarta government who accompanied him.
After running the checking, he was swarmed by residents. He then conversed with them regarding a number of issues.
On the way to get to the
residents across from Tanah Abang Block G, he was impeded by a concrete roadblock.
Unswervingly, he jumped over it to meet them. (T: Dayu Indriyani)
